Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Golden in the glass with a white head that had a thin layer lasting. Skunked aroma with a backing of wheat and farmyard. The flavor found wheat and hints of nut. Light body with a light malt and nut aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty basic light amber orange with a finger of puffy off white head. Some metallic malt aroma and grassy hops with a sneaking hint of caramel. Taste is more pale malts, bits of caramel and standard lager like grassy hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty blah. nutty aroma, and a lot of walnut in the flavor as well. That’s probably the only unique thing about this beer. Finishes just a bit bitter.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
beer pours more like a pale lager color than amber. 2 inch head crushes in an instant. Smells like funky malt and dirty sock. Tastes like ass. metallic aftertaste. Forgettable palte. pass on this one. This has got to be the sludge leftover in the brew kettles from when they brewed coors original that they just added water to/

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Clear, orange-amber with a quarter-inch of lasting foam. Aroma of rubber, grass and light honey. Flavor is unfortunately the same on the front, but is somewhat redeemed by some light toasted nut on the finish. Light-medium body is dryish and tingly.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a lovely golden copper with an off-white head that dies immediately! I had this on tap at the Olive Pit in the Walkers Point section of east-side Milwaukee. Metallic nose with "punch in the face" corn water. Funny soup bullion taste. The other posters here must have been drunker than me when they tasted this! 1.5 is a freaking gift, and I wouldn’t pay the $8 a six pack I’ve seen this priced at in the local stores!
I’m damned sick of brewers passing crap like this off as if it’s some sort of micro-brew messiah juice. Enough, already!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a clear pale amber color with a big white head. I don’t care too awful much for the aroma a little skunky, and a little grainy with some aromatic hops in the background. This has a nice pronounced biscuit like flavor and is largely dry. The hops are actually fairly strong for this style but something seems a bit off in the mix. Either way it reminds me of the Leinenkugels of days past and in general it’s pretty nice.
